Man am I proud of this one. It's my first prop ever. Ive done others, but i started this one first. It just took a while to work on. I was inspired by John Carpenters 'The Thing' and my baby boy. The story behind it is, is one night I was putting Cooper to bed and he let out this horrible scream that made me think of the Thing when it would mutate. So I imagined his teddy bear next to him changing shape. Hence my creature bursting out of the teddy bear. I worked hard on this guy, hope you guys enjoy it.

Great Job! ----very unsettling prop....I really like that skeletal hand and arm coming out.
I can't help but think of the episode of "The Simpsons" where Maggie turns out to be an alien.......Homer says "oh look, Maggie lost her baby legs." LOL.

Good prop Cheetah!

I like it. Very creative in your ideas! I think this prop is one that shows up best under whitish light. The colored lights IMO hide too much of your nice detail work.

Wow. That is very creepy.
I like how you've made skin pulling away from the skull with nylon?
Looks very disturbing Cheetah
Great Job!

He's going to be afraid of stuffed animals his whole life.

That's just not right.
Is that a photoshop??
Cheetah promise me you wont make your kid look at scary stuff like that! Atleast until he's older and can understand. You're going to do damage.
